Our Score
This third film in the jolting Spanish zombie franchise is deftly directed by Paco Plaza, who shared the chair with Jaume Balagueró on the earlier films. Clara (Leticia Dolera) and Koldo (Diego Martin) are celebrating their wedding day at a swanky Barcelona mansion when all hell breaks loose during the reception party. Separated from each other, the newlyweds try to reunite, battling rabid hordes with everything at their disposal, including a chainsaw and a blender. Initially unfolding in the jerky manner of a wedding video, the filming shifts to a more conventional but fluid style after 20 minutes, a marked shift from the look and feel of the first two films. Other changes include a lighter tone, some irreverent humour and a deepening of the religious aspect of the story. With the focus on a newly married couple there is even a certain romantic sweetness at play, giving a refreshing, almost fairy-tale tone to the film that is worlds away from the unrelenting grimness of the previous entries in the series.

Summary

A couple's wedding day takes a grim turn when some of the guests display signs of a strange illness. They are soon falling prey to a disease that turns people into bloodthirsty maniacs. In the ensuing carnage, the bride and groom are separated and face a desperate struggle to find each other. Horror sequel, starring Leticia Dolera and Diego Martin. In Spanish and Catalan.
